    Gotta believe that any respectable bucket list would include at least a couple of entries for this event.

    Been to all 10 of the LSRUs, in fact I was there before they even called it the LSRU. :)
    This year is tied with the first year for my favorite Round Up. Steve and the Kontinentals always put on a great show, but this year was just amazing!! Never thought that someone could make a show this big run this smoothly, but they did it.

    Thanks to the Kontinentals, the folks at the Austin Speed Shop and all my new and old hot rod friends for a great weekend!!!

    Thanks Big Creep and tell your girl friend thanks too! My wife didnt feel comfortable with them in the coupe when they were younger (she's a really good mom) so this was their first big trip (to and from the hotel) in it. I was so stoked!!! :)

    Brent, that was us!! Tight fit, but gets mom to the Tahoe. Im finishing up a 51 for this very reason!!! :)

  13. I went today. I'm a lurker here. I love street rods but don't have one yet. I did save a Packard 327 straight-8 from the crusher, so there's a start.:cool:

    I'm also a model builder. I snapped some pics just for reference info, so you might find some of them boring. Here's a link to all 198 pics. http://public.fotki.com/TunnelRammedBigBlock/lone-star-roundup-2011/

    I gotta say, that rat rod with fuel tank behind the driver's head looks scary.

    I really love this traditional Deuce. [​IMG]
     
  14. That gold 3w was Pat Pattons,Groucho's buddy. It's a beautiful car,even if it's glass. I went with him and another friend,to Paso one year,following that car.

    Damn I've been hunting the Walker Morrison Roadster for a while now. I can't wait to see this car one day. It's got one of my top 5 engine bays of all time I think. Slick as shit.

    Seeing this at the roundup yesterday really got me inspired to finally get my Safari done. Had a very great time yesterday. Maybe I'll be done in time to take the 57 next year.

    Almost a 1600 mile ride in my roadster but worth the ride for sure. It was great catching up with people you don't get to see on a regular basis, nice long ride with a group of my friends, great week!
     
  27. On S. Congress yesterday evening. These guys were letting people take pics of thier kids in these rails and firing them up occasionally. We sat by these racers for about a half hour, the smiles on the kids faces were priceless, and the sound of the motors was music to ears!!!!!

    Just got back this was our third year. As long as I'm in Texas I won't miss one, it's an excuse to go hang out in Austin and stoke the fires of my car jones, maybe soon I'll have a car to bring. My thanks to many, in no particular order:

    The Kontinentals for an event that runs amazingly smooth. They just nail it and everyone is friendly.

    Minibike racers - you put on a great show

    Anyone who brought a car; thanks for the effort, the sheer number and variety of cool cars and trucks makes this show so cool.

    Vendors - We always end up with some stuff I never knew I needed.

    Everyone who went, car shows seem to bring out the friendliest crowd.

    And last, everyone posting picture of the stuff I missed!

    The wife and I just got home from a weekend in Austin. The show was awsome, The cruising on congress was insane and the entire weekend was awsome. I got myself a new HAMB shirt but you were busy when we were there talking to a guy with a cool ass trophy
